If you want to import a Canva presentation or design into Google Slides, here is how you can do that. This guide will help you go through the entire process to import and edit Canva presentations on Google Slides. Although there is no direct option, you can follow an indirect option to get the job done.
Canva is a great tool, which has multiple options for Instagram posts, Facebook cover, YouTube thumbnails, etc. However, if you want to create unique presentations for your project, you can also use Canva. Even if you have a free account, you can get the benefits of Canva.
Let’s assume that you have created a presentation on Canva and now want to edit it in Google Slides, which is another free slideshow maker app. For your information, there is no direct option to get it done.
However, Canva allows users to download the presentation in PPTX format, which is compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint. The best thing is that you can upload that to Google Slides and edit the presentation accordingly. Alternatively, you can connect your Google Drive account and import the file directly into Google Drive. Then, you have to open it in Google Slides. This article elaborates on how you can set those things up correctly.
